Intel chief Brian Krzanich began his CES keynote by addressing the elephant in the room: a massive chip vulnerability disclosed last week. Krzanich praised the industry for coming together so quickly and noted that so far there are no known exploits that have compromised customer data. "We are working tirelessly to ensure it stays that way," he said.

Why it matters: Although the vulnerabilities affect nearly all modern chips to varying degrees, Intel has come under particular scrutiny. Intel has said it doesn't see the issue denting profits or slowing its roadmap, however.
